The Future of Wolves in Wyoming


Animals  (tags: wolves, wyoming, the sad truth )

wolves in the 'predator' zone - approximately 85% of Wyoming - can be killed by anyone for any reason, by any means - without a license. Wolves and their pups can be shot on sight, chased to exhaustion, gassed in their dens, or worse - with no regulation

In this case however, handing wolf management over to the state of Wyoming, with its seriously flawed management plan, undermines wolf recovery progress both in Wyoming and across the region..wolves in the ‘predator’ zone – approximately 85% of Wyoming – can be killed by anyone for any reason, by any means – without a license. Wolves and their pups can be shot on sight, chased to exhaustion, gassed in their dens, or worse – with no regulation at all. . Chances of survival for these wolves or for establishing any packs in the future outside the ‘trophy game’ zone around the national parks are virtually nil, which USFWS admits.

A second serious flaw in the latest version of the state’s plan, and reason for our decision to fight for continued federal protection for Wyoming wolves, is that the plan fails to secure the connectivity needed to allow wolves in Northwest Wyoming to breed with wolves elsewhere in the region.

Wyoming is an American state, then he should be familiar with its origins, in the world. outside the US when we think about America the first thoughts are for cowboys, Indians and all those "magic" animals that created the legend of the U.S., which : bison, eagles, moose, bears and wolves.
Why an American state wants to destroy a part of its history and a U.S. legend?
How sad news, thank you so much Roxy

The Sierra Club is right. The states have mismanaged their wolf populations and federal protection must be restored to keep the wolves from being forever lost.
